Hitkrant, 1979: Children from Rotterdam are singing with ABBA

Odd that the song that was actually performed – ‘I Have A Dream’ – was not on that tape...
A choir from the Rotterdam Music School is going to help ABBA out in two songs during their concert at the Ahoy venue in Rotterdam. The choir – consisting of 25 boys and girls – received a tape with the two songs on it, namely ‘I Wonder’ and ‘Thank You For The Music’. At the moment, the choir is very busy with rehearsing the songs, so that they will achieve the best result possible. Obviously, everyone regards it as very big honour to be able to perform with ABBA once.

I didn't know that they used a children's choir for I Wonder and Thank You For The Music? Very interesting, I wonder how it sounded?

Well, if these two songs were really on that tape, then the choir practised the wrong songs. 'I Wonder' was not performed on the 1979 tour at all and 'Thank You For The Music' not with a children's choir.
